FOCUS products have to satisfy the highest requirements. That’s what we expect of ourselves. To meet these quality requirements, we develop our own technologies for maximum performance. Unique selling points in terms of functionality, efficiency and design characterise the patented technologies from our design and engineering department in Stuttgart. The art of German engineering. Tested under the most extreme conditions and developed with our top athletes. So that our customers only have the best of experiences. German Engineered Experience.
F.O.L.D. (Focus Optimized Linkage Design)
F.O.L.D. stands for FOCUS Optimised Linkage Design, and offers the ultimate in rear suspension. The patented F.O.L.D. kinematics make it possible to optimise the suspension for an extremely wide range of different requirements. This ensures maximum riding fun both when racing and on long adventures.
R.A.T. (Rapid Axle Technology)
Thru axles increase stability and stiffness, but usually also take more time to change the wheel. Not so with FOCUS. The specially designed Rapid Axle Technology is the fastest wheel-change system; much more so than even traditional quick-release levers.
With FOCUS, there is a small T-pin at the end of the thru axle, which is pushed into a mount on the other side, so the axle only has to be rotated 90 degrees to close the quick-release lever. This technology received a Eurobike Award at Eurobike 2014.
AIR FLOW SYSTEM
The Air Flow system provides optimal ventilation for the integrated battery, and fresh, cool air flows through the Airflow Intakes into the down tube where the battery is installed. Heat produced is removed through this air flow via the down tube.
T.E.C. (TAILORED ENERGY CONCEPT)
Thanks to the Tailored Energy Concept (T.E.C.), there are three different options for the down tube: either with integrated battery only, with the option of installing an additional battery (T.E.C. pack) with a flick of the wrist or alternatively of fitting a bottle cage using a simple click system (Smart Rack).
